Today is going to be an amazing day and here’s why; because, today, the film adaptation of the Award winning groundbreaking musical Dear Evan Hansen is released today in Theaters. Even after a extremely rough 18 1/2 months, this powerful story finally makes the big jump from our Theater scene to the Big Screen. This story is truly the ultimate celebration of the underdogs and celebrating those to let their voices be heard.
Under the direction of Stephen Chbosky. the film stars…..
the musical’s original star Ben Platt reprising his Tony Award winning performance as the title role of “Evan Hansen” himself,
Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe winner Julianne Moore as “Heidi Hansen”,
Golden Globe nominee Kaitlin Dever as “Zoe Murphy”,
Oscar nominee Amy Adams as “Cynthia Murphy”,
Colton Ryan as “Connor Murphy” (a part he previously understudied in the Broadway production),
Acclaimed actress and singer Amandla Stenberg as “Alana Beck”,
Acclaimed actor and comedian Nik Dodani as “Jared Kleinman”,
Danny Pino as “Larry” (who is now updated as the stepfather of “The Murphy Family”).
It features all the beloved Tony and Grammy winning songs by Pasek and Paul. In addition, there are 2 new ones written for the film which promises to make audiences an emotional mess. Ironically, speaking of the score….. the film’s soundtrack is also available today…. both for digital and physical copies.
If anyone who enjoys the film version, we know this will get more audiences to come and see the stage version of DEAR EVAN HANSEN as it prepares to return this Fall. Our very own New York company will reopen at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre starting December 11th, 2021. Meanwhile, the London company reopens at the Noel Coward Theatre starting October 26th, 2021. From there, the North American National Tour will re-kick off December 7th, 2021 in Greensboro, NC before traveling to more than 30 cities across both the USA and and Canada.
WORDS FAIL to describe our excitement. Once again, we seriously cannot wait to go WATCH, WATCH, WATCHIN’ this movie at our local movie Theaters. We know it will inspire us once again that even in the toughest times, YOU WILL BE FOUND.
Congrats to the full cast, crew, creative team, and everyone involved.
